What’s The Most Satisfying Game To Play?
Satisfaction: the fulfillment of your wishes, expectations, needs, and/or the pleasure derived from this. Now before you get excited, this isn’t from you sexing your games, but rather them sexing you.
Achievement whores will play games until they’ve reached maximum score, where after this they would have reached satisfaction. They’ve then “completed” the game, everything is done and they’re happy. However, not all games regardless of achievements can be satisfying. Because they’re absolutely obsessed with finishing games 100%, they can sometimes reach utter frustration where it leaves them less than satisfied, and rather annoyed.
Satisfaction is quite complex. There’s a lot to it. It’s more than just happiness, in fact, its more than a feeling. It’s being more than content.
Games can offer lots of satisfaction. Depending on the type of gamer you are, and the type of games you play, anything can satisfy anyone. If you’re an FPS freak, you might be easily satisfied by topping the scoreboard three maps in a row, where if you’re an RPG fan, you might find it really pleasurable to simply run around and do various quests collecting valuable items.
Once you’ve finished playing the game, you feel that you’re better at something or than someone else. You’re satisfied because the game has made you feel special and it curbed your discomfort, whatever that might be. If it’s a new game, the discomfort could be anxiety that the game is as good as you hope. When it is, you’re satisfied and the anxiety is replaced with pleasure.
For me, puzzle games are really satisfying. Well, that’s if the puzzle is challenging enough. It’s often fun to be tested, where once you pass, you feel good.
